Eagles habitat presentation Oct. 11

Posted

The Upper Delaware River region is home to one of the largest wintering populations of bald eagles in the northeast.

Delaware Highlands Conservancy will host “Eagles and Their Habitat,” presented by National Park Service biologist and Natural Resources Chief Don Hamilton, and Paul Gamer, Eagle Watch volunteer and bus tour guide.

The presentation will be held at the Van Scott Nature Reserve in Beach Lake, Pa. on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 5:30-7 p.m.

Learn about the resident bald eagles in our region that live here year-round and the migrants that arrive in the winter from Canada and upstate New York. Hamilton and Gamer will talk about the bald eagles, the habitat they need to thrive, the best places to view wintering eagles, and “Eagle Etiquette” tips for safely viewing the birds without disturbing them.

After the presentation, those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions and join the discussion.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Fee is $5 for Conservancy members and $10 for non-members. Light refreshments will be served.
